Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson said that junior defensive end Theron Kadri has left the football team.
Johnson called it a personal decision and said Kadri informed him prior to Tuesday’s workout. Johnson added that he had no insight into the player’s plans for the future.
“All I can say is that it is an opportunity for guys like Teriall Brannon, Josh Jelesky, Walker May and Tim Fugger to step up and help this program,” Johnson said.
Kadri, from Brighton, Tenn., played in 11 games last season and started the regular-season finale against Wake Forest. He had a career-high 19 tackles.
